Bijou Bridal was amazing! I tried on upwards of 50 dresses and couldn’t connect with ANY bridal consultants. Finally I came to Katie at Bijou in Ardmore and she was amazing! She totally went above and beyond. She even emailed me an update on my dress. 

When my mom came to see my dress, she created the extra details that I wanted to add out of tissue paper! She had them prepped and ready so that we could make the final decision.

After I purchased my dress and had a meltdown about the length, she even graciously invited me back in to try on the gown with shoes and meet with the seamstress. The staff at Bijou Bridal are truly the best that I came across in the bridal bizz! Not only are they nice and helpful, they are actually caring and patient (extremely hard to find).

I really feel like that psycho on SYTTD now who goes and visits the salon every couple of weeks. I just really loved them all! It has become a very different experience from the dreaded gown shopping that I had been doing over the past year.

Best of luck!!

I would steer clear of Irinis.  Something is not right over there.  With a wedding shop on every corner, I could not believe the way we were treated at Irinis. The sales woman and seamstress treated my entire wedding party and especially my mother poorly. I am 2 weeks from my wedding and have no dress or veil. They lied and failed to deliver what they promised. I would highly recommend that you go elsewhere even if the sales woman tries to work you a deal. She is dishonest. Why trust someone so untrustworthy with your wedding dress?

I would still recommend Irini’s despite NN1276’s review…I have had two fittings since my last review and I still think they do an awesome job.  They had to completely alter my neckline into a sweetheart which included removing all the beading and placing it back on and did a great job.  The hemming was spot on and they did a great job with the bustle.  Also Niki, the owner, is helpful and always willing to accomodate.

I went to Stella Maris in Holmes, PA first and didn’t like the experience.  I took a pic of what I was looking for and she showed me samples that were close, but not what I wanted.  The people were nice, but were pushy.  I ended up purchasing my dress from Claire’s Fashions in Delaware.  They had a good selection and were nice people to deal with.

I went to Forever Formals in Kennett Square.  They had a 40% off sale and I got a great deal.  They are really nice there and maybe a little nutty, but if you like nice and nutty their prices were good.  Cool

Bridal Garden, Marlton NJ. I had a good experience. I also went there a year ago with a friend who got married in 2011. She had a good experience.
